Loneliness can be so bad you want to scream from the rooftops: “why me?”.
Finding somewhere you belong is like finding water in a desert, you want to dance and yell, “yes l have found a place where l can feel wanted!”.
Aberdeen Action on Disability, AAD for short is such a place, where you can go have a chat and a cuppa and just ‘chill’, or get involved with one of their projects.
People that go to AAD have many problems in their lives, but they are made to feel welcome and accepted, like l was when l first started going to AAD.
Since finding AAD, l have started a media course run by Andrew Hunter, who when you get to know him he likes to be called Andy. He is very easy to talk to and puts you at ease, in my opinion anyway.
This is my first attempt at writing an article so l thought l would write about my introduction to AAD , which was warm and welcoming.
People can find themselves isolated, isolation can lead to deep depression, this can spiral out of control and before you realise it dark thoughts creep into your mind. Help is out there though, but it can be hard to take the first step. Once made though you will not regret it.
